Lamu was assaulted while she was on the air

A popular Chinese vlogger has died after her ex-husband poured petrol on her and set her on fire while she was trying to appear on a live broadcast, local media reported.

The blogger, called “Lamu”, was very popular with “Doen”, the Chinese version of TikTok, and had hundreds of thousands of followers.

Lamu suffered 90% of her body burns and died two weeks after the attack.

The case sparked a discussion on social media about violence against women in China.

Lamu, 30, from Sichuan Province, China, was known for her happy posts about rural life and was praised for not using cosmetics in her videos, and garnering millions of likes.

According to the “Beijing Youth Daily”, one of the official media, the Lamu screen stopped broadcasting and went black shortly after the start of the live broadcast on September 14th.

According to reports, her ex-husband, who only mentioned his family name “Tang”, broke into her house armed with a knife and a canister of petrol.

After the attack on 14 September, “Lamu” was taken to a local hospital and then transferred to the Sichuan Provincial People’s Hospital in Sichuan for further treatment, according to a statement from the Jinchuan Provincial Public Security Bureau.

Her family asked her followers for financial assistance, so more than one million yuan (114,280 pounds sterling) was collected within just 24 hours, according to what was published by the Chinese newspaper “The Paper”.

Lamu died on 30 September.

What led to this attack?

According to Beijing Youth Daily, Tang had a record of domestic violence.

Lamu’s sister-in-law, identified as “Mr. Lau,” said he heard his wife “remember that her sister was often beaten by Tang”.

Reports indicate that Lamu divorced Tang earlier in May – the couple have two children, each of whom has custody of a child.

A news report said that shortly after their divorce, Tang threatened to kill one of the two children if Lamu did not remarry him.

Lamu did, but ended up running away from it. Unable to find her, Tang interrogated her relatives – and Lamu’s sister, who refused to reveal Lamu’s whereabouts, was also beaten by Tang.

The family members said that this incident was reported to the police, who did not do anything, they said.

Ultimately, Lamu divorced him again and he gained custody of the two children.

Police said Tang was arrested on September 14, on suspicion of “premeditated murder.” A police statement said that a team of investigators was continuing to investigate the case.

What was the reaction?

The issue has sparked a discussion on the Chinese social media site Weibo. More than 70 million people have used a hashtag to mention her death.

One employer said she hoped “to give women more security”.

Another user attacked police officials, saying, “Where were you when a report (of his previous assault) was filed? Why didn’t you care?

This is not the first time that a victim of domestic violence has faced difficulty in the Chinese justice system.

Earlier this year, a Chinese woman was beaten by her husband with such brutality that she jumped out of the net to escape by herself.

She later tried to divorce him, providing security camera pictures as evidence. But the court refused to grant her the divorce she wanted.

She later uploaded the video to social media, where thousands came to her defense – and the court later granted her a divorce.

And China had recently introduced a new amendment to the law that gives a 30-day deadline for “the minds to calm down” before husbands can grant a divorce, in order to allow the parties to reconsider their decision. However, this raised some concern that during this period victims of domestic violence would be forced to rethink their decision.

This law, which will go into effect in 2021, does not apply to families with a history of domestic violence, although human rights groups say that many cases of domestic violence are not reported to the police.
